bipartisan support than you would think is comprehensive immigration reform which would increase the need for skilled labor that many people say is critical to their location decisions. so this is a very, very top priority of the president as is making sure our training programs are more demand driven, that we're working with you and community colleges so if you want to locate here, that there's someone who says if you're a little unsure whether there's a particular skill need that may not be met in a particular location, that we will work with you to make sure there is a training program, a partnership that works for you. that's one area. the second area which the president's put out is to have what he calls kind of a grand bargain on jobs where you would lower the corporate tax rate, have a lower corporate tax rate and at the same time use some of the one-time funds to strengthen our infrastructure so that your supply chains can move more quickly. so these are important components we have to do and, obviously, the third one is that we have to give -- and we fight very hard on -- a great
